Gift of Madeleine Sugimoto and Naomi Tagawa, Japanese American National Museum


Mounted on board and unframed.

Two small figures, a man and a boy, walk along a path on a brown and grey grassy slope. The man is dressed in dark blue pants with a blue long sleeve shirt and white hat, while the boy wears a white shirt, blue shorts and blue cap; they both carry and buckets and the man holds a pole. The foreground is dominated by a pool of standing water rimmed with mud and grass. Behind them is an open area and in the distance, barracks and a watchtower.

Signed in medium, bottom right corner: H. Sugimoto
